    London, 1931: As growing up looms large in the lives of the Carne sisters, Deirdre, Katrine, and young Sheil still share an insatiable appetite for the fantastic. Eldest sister Deirdre is a journalist, Katrine a fledgling actress, and young Sheil is still with her governess; together they live a life unchecked by their mother in their bohemian town house. Irrepressibly imaginative, the sisters cannot resist making up stories as they have done since childhood.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This is one of my all time favorite books. It's odd, funny, Sui Generis. I've read it over and over and was delighted to find an. Audio version, but disappointed by the reader's accent and choices. This is SUCH an English book; to hear it read in an American voice was like finding a poor translation from a foreign language. And so much of it is witty dialogue, which often didn't come across well here. I'd urge this book on anyone but read it rather than listen to this.


    Do you think The Brontës Went to Woolworths needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Good God no
